had a three night stay at this hotel and all the previous reviews hit the mark entirely. Would highly recommend this for location and comfort. This was a birthday treat organised by my husband and it couldn,t have been better. We prebooked a private boat taxi from the airport. It was expensive at Euro 120 but it was fabulous and as a treat a magical way to arrive straight to the water taxi entrance to the hotel.
The hotel is in a quiet area next to a canal but only minutes from the hustle and bustle of shops, bars and the rialto bridge. The service is excellent, all the staff were attentive and informative on advice for trips sightseeing etc. The room was beaustiful. We booked a deluxe and it was enormous!! Very comfortable and perfect for three nights. breakfast was very good. we didn,t eat dinner at the hotel preferring something abit more low key but it looked very good.
We did ll the usual tourist things, gondola trip, St Marks Square etc.
For something abit different i would recommend a trip by vaperetto to Burana one of the furthest islands. This was recommended by the hotel and we had a lovely sfternoon there wondering around the canal, old town etc it was very qyauint and worth the trip. also witnedded fabulous sunsets etc,
All in all a lovely memorable trip. i would recommend going out of season as hotel rates very good value and although busy not too rammed. We were able to see everthing comfortably with no queues etc.
